I took some blobs to bed with me last night and a black felt tip. It being bed time when I painted my blobs, I wasn’t quite on the ball enough to remember to do them on watercolour paper so the paper has buckled and they lack the nice gravelly edges.
But it was a meditative and relaxing (but also kind of stimulating) thing to do, propped up by pillows in bed. Turning my page this way and that trying to find the hidden creature in each blob.
I found a few dogs who weren’t pleased with either their hairstyles or with each other. And one that has slipped on a banana skin.
I found an overexcited squirrel.
I found a princess escaping a fate worse than death, cloaked and riding on the back of a miniature elephant in the dead of night. (with faithful wire-haired miniature dachshund x schipperke – also known as a Whipperke-Dipperke)
I found a very surprised budgie on the head of a cranky sheep.
I found a frisbee catching dog who needs to see an orthopaedic surgeon about his front legs.
I found a pug in a bad mood. I think he’s trying to tell me something.
And I found a range of the usual birds and monstrosities.
And I found an overweight chick eating play lunch in the school yard.
That reminds me, it’s lunch time.
I’ll add colour to some of these when I get a chance.
